. chairman paul ryan has worked hard with the budget committee to outline the kind of reforms we would put in place to bring real fiscal responsibility here in washington. and the american people understand that you can't continue to spend money that you don't have. it's time for us to come to a plan that will, in fact, balance the budget over the next 10 years. it's our commitment to the american people and we hope the senate will do their budget as they should have done over the last four years. >> good evening. as the speaker said, our conference will look to vote on a measure tomorrow that will temporarily extend the debt ceiling so that we can see the senate actually begin to do its job. for several years now, i think it's about four, the senate has not passed a budget. and all we're saying is, if the president and the senate -- if this country needs to incur more debt, senate, please show us your plan to repay that debt. please show us your plan to control spending. it's about time that we come together, do our work, the american people expect no less. that's why we'll insist on the
did this now rather than waiting until the very end because, mr. ryan, i don't even know -- and you don't have to respond to this -- but i don't know i just can't do that any more. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. in defense of me asking you three or four as it were to come up here, i'm delighted that we did this now rather than waiting until the very end because, mr. ryan, i don't even know -- and you don't have to respond to this -- but i don't know what day we have to have it ready. and so i viewed that as committee chairman, speaking with each other, including our republican leadership, that we were trying to do the correct thing and to make sure the administration read us as clear. this is not a poison pill. this would be something that the senate would have to agree to and public comments out of the senate by senate democrats have indicated the willingness to accept it. >> right. that's one of the reasons we are doing it now because we don't want to bring it to brinksmanship. the statement of administration policies, snap, we use acronyms around here, we don't know
minutes past the hour. time for top stories. congressman paul ryan says, when it comes to the country's financial health, the president is not taking it seriously enough. the former vice presidential candidate took to the air waves in his first live interview since the election. he said why the gop controlled house decided to buy time on the debt ceiling debate. >> they haven't put out a plan. the reason why we wanted to get the debt limit extended is so we can showcase our budgets. here's our plan for economic rule. here's our plan for balancing the budget. here's our plan for entitlement reform, which is necessary if you want to save medicare from bankruptcy and get this debt under control. >> as for 2016, ryan says it's premature to say if he will run for president. >>> several miles of the mississippi river closed this morning after two tank barges loaded with crude oil hit a railroad bridge. happened near the town of vicksburg, about 45 miles west of the jackson. one tank with 80,000 gallons of crude oil zastarted leaking. the coast guard stopped the leak. they're trying to figur
the gentleman representing the ways and means committee, mr. ryan, who's also -- paul ryan, chairman of the house budget committee, in testimony said that he intended to make sure that he would produce a bill exactly supporting what we are trying to do here today and would bring that to the floor as would be faithful in doing that. look, maybe people are upset that we're putting their pay at risk. maybe people are upset because it wasn't their idea, but the bottom line is is that paul ryan, john boehner, eric cantor, the rules committee yesterday said we think it's a good bill and we were joined bihari reid, the senate majority -- joined by harry reid, the senate majority leader. when the senate majority leader agrees with the house republican leadership and join with them in trying to make sure that we get our job done, i think that's a rare day. i think that's a good day when we can work together, when we can bring legislation that the senate openly welcomes and might i add, the president of the united states, president obama would sign this legislation. and he said so in the stat
-new stories and breaking news. congressman paul ryan in his first national tv interview since the election and a former republican vice-presidental nominee came out swinging, what he has to say about the president's second term, plus the warning from members of his own party. meantime the president's comments on football getting lots of attention, his call for less violence in america's favorite sport. will that bring any changes? a desperate attempt to rescue a toddler from raging floodwaters, the whole story and the dramatic video plus breaking news, it's all happening now. it is all "happening now." jon: bipartisan group of senators about to announce a plan to rewrite our nation's immigration law and provide a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants. good morning i'm jon scott. jamie: i'm jamie colby, in for jenna lee. jon: welcome. jamie: thank you. the plan includes measures to strengthen our border security, and will improve they say the illegal immigration process and include an effective ememployment verification system to insure employers do not hire undocumented
director, standing by at that meeting in charlotte where ryan previs was elected to a second term. harsh words from jindal about his own party, to his own party. i heard a little laughter, maybe nervous. how were his comments received? >> i got to tell you, in some ways that speech by bobby jindal was a call to arms for conservatism, at the same time erin, i think it might have been a campaign speech. overall the theme of it was well-received. i think republicans are very frustrated about what happened in the november election. they were not very happy with mitt romney as a candidate at the very end. and of course, some of those ridiculous comments that we heard such as legitimate rape from some senate candidates were very damaging to the party. so right now republicans here in charlotte spent the last couple of days talking about how to recalibrate their message and this is their goal, try to reach out to minority voters and young voters, the new chairman says he's going to put a plan together. we'll see fit works. >> interesting. it's going to take them a few months to do it and the ne
a little bit about congressman paul ryan. he was of course the republican vice-presidential nominee. he has been pretty quiet since the election. speaking out in his first national interview warning republicans that president obama is not looking to moderate and move to the middle but is instead looking for a political fight. >> i decided not to comment between the election and the inauguration because i wanted to see what kind of president we're looking at here? what kind of path and trajectory he was putting his administration on. all of the statements and all of the comments lead me to believe he is thinking more of a political conquest than political compromise. and that is my concern. jon: ryan also focused on the nation's fiscal crisis saying only significant spending cuts, not tax reform, will solve the deficit problem. that is something is he thinks the president is missing. >> i don't think that the president thinks we actually have a fiscal crisis. he has been reportedly saying to our leaders we don't have a spending problem, we have a health care problem. that leads me to conclud
as a contrast to some of the other big names, marco rubio and paul ryan. he has a good education reform going down there that is popular with the gop base. he is a devout catholic which helps in states like out oiowa. it really is focused on developing problem solving and he can be very effective. he's gotten better as a speaker which is also important. host: thank you for correcting me. he was speaking at the republican national committee winter meeting. tell us about other republicans getting was right now. guest: chris christie is certainly a media darling. the more he does to the popular with the media, he is being perceived as a good governor but it is hurting him with the gop base and he has gone under fire as of late. he has been fighting hard for funding for hurricane sandy release. he came out firing right after new year's ripping into john boehner for not getting the bill passed quickly enough. he has a status of, and doing what's best for my state, which will be good in getting reelected. but rand paul said he looks like he was just money grubbing for his state. he was also very cr
will that go over? >> reporter: by the way, i can tell that you alec baldwin and rob ryan letter present him with that award. if anybody deserves a lifetime achievement award it is dick van dyke. he has been in this game for more than 50 years. he does have a personal connection with the s.a.g. awards, too, miguel, because he met his wife here at the screen actors guild awards. so it's been a pretty good run at the s.a.g. awards for him a special night for him. i have a little bit of breaking news i can leave you with. one of the nominees tonight, we have learned, tommy lee jones, nominated for best supporting actor for his role as thaddius stevens in "lincoln" will not be here because, like many americans, he has come down with a really bad case of the flu. he has got whatever's been going around. i know so many people that have been, you know, strucken with that. he is one of them, won't be here and he could very well win as well. >> nischelle turn, thank you very much you look lovely as ever. have fun out there. >> thank you. >> we will have more on the man who spent 50 years making you l
to be an orphan. he certainly has had an opportunity to bring forward a budget or bring up the ryan budget. he's been in a leadership position. he's leaving the senate without fiscal responsibility. they are the ones that haven't passed a budget in over 1,000 days and counting. >>gretchen: wasn't he on the -- was he on one of the super committees or the debt commission? was he on that particular commission to try to come up with a bipartisan plan? >> you know, i apologize. i wasn't on it. ryan was. the fact is, though, that that committee came up with a mixture of tax increases which we've had and spending cuts which we haven't had and haven't had any cooperation with democrats in the senate to begin doing. what you saw, just before we left for the district work period for various activities like meeting with world economic leaders here in davos is we moved it 90 days so we could attempt one more time to pass a budget, something that would allow us to let public and private leaders around the world have confidence in what our spending is going to be and that in fact we're going to pay our debt
responsibility of passing a budget. we passed one each of the last two years we've been in the majority the ryan budget laid out a plan how to deal with america's biggest problems, our debt, deficit and ongoing spending. if we don't reform we'll end up bankrupting this country and it is unfair to the next generation not to stop this. it is time for the senate to step up and act. bill: republicans referencing the speech from yesterday with one reference to the deficit. if no debt limit is reached, however, the government could default on its obligations within weeks so watch that story. martha: well, this is an interesting one. pro golfer, phil mickelson, doing a little bit of backpedaling today saying he regrets the public comments he made on the issue of his taxes in california. mickelson said he may move out when he made the original comments, of the state, because all taxes combined end up to more than 60% tax rate. now he is telling fox news contributor jim gray, quote, finances and taxes are a personal matter and i should not have made a opinions of, on them public. i apologize to those who
wyden worked with the house budget committee chairman paul ryan to develop a similar proposal in the 112th congress. so while there may be some resistance to this particular idea, it has enjoyed bipartisan support. and finally, number five, we need to strengthen medicaid for patients and states through realistic reforms. setting per-capita limits on federal medicaid spending would put the medicaid program on a sustainable budget, and when combined with increased flexibility for patient-centered reforms at the state level, would reduce costs and improve patient care across the board. and as with other ideas i have mentioned, this is a bipartisan proposal. in 1995, president clinton introduced a medicaid reform plan that included a per-capita cap on federal medicaid spending. at that time, all 46 democratic senators, including several that are still serving today, signed a letter to president clinton expressing support for this proposal. in addition, in october of last year, former democratic senate majority leader tom daschle publicly expressed support for per-capita caps on medicaid spen
